administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j

and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a short time ago. >> further i would like to note that secretary clinton has committed to testifying before our
may find out. the house ways and means committee says the obama administration has stonewalled request for information. forget co-pays. this illinois doctor charges only five bucks a visit. the 87-year-old doesn't even accept medical insurance. he claims it's not worth the hassle. he says he's just interested in helping people and not making much dough. all right. steve? >> steve: president obama yesterday held his first press conference in eight months and got testy when asked about the deadly attack in libya where four americans were murdered. >> i would like for you to address the families, if you can, on 9-11 as commander in chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> i'll address the families not through the press. i'll address the families directly as i already have. i can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they're safe. >> steve: so has the president been forth coming with the american people and is congress satisfied with his respon
on and on about the different gifts the obama administration had given to different couldn't constituents. he said quote, free contraceptives were big with young college-aged women. it struck me, because they said the democrats are reducing women to abortion and birth control. women are much more than that. apparently in the analysis after the fact, mitt romney believes that women just voted because obama was going to give them free birth control. they should have just sent out condoms and birth control. much more effective. >> obama is doing good giving out phones. >> look, whatever you think of the substance of this, and i will say that there's a little truth in here in that democrats did not promise free stuff, and that i don't think that's why people voted for obama. people voted for obama because they liked him, and they believed that his policies are going to work in a second term. democrats certainly did threaten that republicans were going to take a lot of their stuff away. so you could find some truth in there, but i will say never a good idea to blame the electorate. never a good idea to
to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
. stop fighting these wars. our national debt through the bush and obama administrations, our debt went up over $4 trillion just because of these wars that are totally senseless. the loss of life. now there are talking about, what are we going to go in -- we are so much involved with libya. look at what is happening with libya. it want to go to war against iran. i would say, that is the place to have big cuts. we all ought to agree on doing that. i want to raise -- i would not raise taxes. we need to cut spending. if you raise taxes, you're going to have a weaker economy. some of the tax cuts, even for the middle-class occurred for the bush administration. you do not want to raise taxes on the middle class. it will not be enough money. i think you have touched on something. i think we need to deal with the military. we cannot do that unless we change the foreign policy. we are not the world policeman getting involved with all of these countries. i think the american people ought to agree on that issue more readily than anything else. i do not see why we should talk about cutting health
the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what, they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society, that some a
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. republicans, they stepped up their criticism of the obama administration after the president's strong defense yesterday of u.n. ambassador suzanne rice. rice originally said the attack resulted from protests over an anti-islamic video. while some democrats defended rice today, one congressman called the president a liar. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of this tragedy. >> information that rice received, she cede from the administration, and that information is what she knew at that time. whether or not she knew other information and whether or not she told the truth, that is not an issue here. >> the fact is without iffing gu intoou all the details, documents received so that in 24 hours of the attack people m intelligence community believe that this was a terrorist attack, there was a planned attack, and so when they knew that the day after, which would have been september 12th, why on september 14th was general petraeu
the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h
on this administration. >> obama: she made the appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> now where in there did he say "pick on" pop those were their words. >> stephanie: exactly. and by the way you know who is back to the administration is paul wolwitz. what everybody has said. there were fast-moving events from the middle east. they said this was the intelligence they had at the time. this is lindsay graham yesterday. >> this is about the role she played about four dead americans when it seems to me that the story coming out of the administration, and she's the point person is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. the reason why i don't trust her is b
. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you know, i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly as i already have. and we'll provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigation is for. but as i said repeatedly, if people don't think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there and who were carrying out miss on behalf of
. the officer fired the fatal shot. the deputy sheriff is now on administrative leave. the matter is under investigation. >>> as students from barack obama elementary school ride the bus back to school this morning, they'll probably be thinking about two taking to a hospital after a crash yesterday afternoon. a pickup truck rear ended the bus near the intersection of route 301 and swanson road in upper marlboro. a spokesperson with prince george's county schools tells 32 kids were on the the bus at -- on the bus at the time. you a the injuries, though, considered minor. >>> easing that anxiety of raising your hand in class? there's a solution. social media and education collide in something called the hallway. when we come back, we have an exciting new project. >>> howard here with your weather first. jacket weather once again. another cold start. it's going to be a chilly day today. mix of sun and clouds. by lunch time upper 40s. we'll barely get to the 50- degree mark for a high. by 5:00 p.m. dark already with a temperature of 48. back in just a few minutes with the seven-day going right
wrong, he blames it on bush, last administration, not his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> reporter: in 2009, just after president obama inaugurated, we spent time in king county, we met charlotte mccauley. who told us -- >> i asked god that he would help him truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart would connect with the united states of america. >> reporter: this is charlotte tod today. you told us four years ago you hoped that the lord would connect with barack obama. >> yes. >> reporter: do you think it happened? >> it doesn't appear so. >> reporter: what does it bother you the most about the first term? >> not being honest about where he was born, and different like things like that. to me, he seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii. said that a long time. i'm wondering if, a, have you heard that? if you have, why don't you believe it? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people that don't believe the president about the country of his birth and question his faith. president obama is a practicing christia
